Description

I bought this maxi dress on clearance at Nordstrom.

Because I don’t always want to wear a long dress, I installed little loops at the waist and buttons on the hem to make it “convertible.” It’s a soft jersey, so it flows nicely, and so far no one has noticed when I wear it short that it’s a long dress pulled up! Anyway, it’s like two dresses for the clearance price of one – sweet! :)

Material Notes

soft jersey maxi dress from nordstrom, thread, smallish buttons

    I love it when people reuse instead of throwing things away, and this is even better – very ingenius of you well done! Looks great.
